Superman, Spiderman, the Flash, the Avengers, Green Arrow, Catwoman. Idolized superheroes are able to fly, jump from one roof to another beating up the bad guys. Although they all have their unique characteristics and superpowers, one thing is common. They all use their abilities to the fullest. Digital health offers you the same. You can become a real superhero if you proactively harness the power of technology for your health. Technology has the potential to transform how we think about our health The current medical system in most countries works as a reactive setting. The patient goes to the doctor with existing symptoms, the physician diagnoses a condition, then prescribes drugs and/or recommends a treatment. According to the underlying dynamic, the medical professional articulates his decision based on his knowledge and the patient follows orders. What happens when technology comes into play? What if the patient uses wearables and sensors to monitor vital signs and health parameters? Or what if he crowdsources medical information through patient communities or social media? With the rise of digital technologies, such as artificial narrow intelligence, robotics, virtual reality/augmented reality, telemedicine, 3D-printing, portable diagnostics, health sensors, wearables, etc. the entire structure of healthcare, as well as the roles of patients and doctors, will fundamentally shift from the current status quo. From reactive to preventive medicine. From a hierarchical pat...
